Not only the Mulafest had a bunch of fun contests but also the Fusion Jam in the Netherlands. You can find all the results below. We assume the hard crash award wasn't planned and wish all the best to Gilles who looked a bit destroyed by flatland crash standards ;-) Gergely Szajer from Hungary / Germany won the regular contest. Congratulations! LastMinute Media shared a big photo gallery with us including some ramp and concert photo as well. Check it out: Fusion Jam 2015 Gallery

Wow! Here is your daily dose of awesome from Russia! Ivan is dropping so many hard tricks in this video called "My name is Ivan Makushev"! He almost did the Ucchie flip - upside down wheelie on the pedals to .. rideout to the pedals. Check it! In the title of the video it says "last edit 2015". We don't hope so .. more please!
We just added 2 new Hungarian events to our list. Both take place in July. The Transdanubian Extremesport Championship on July 4 is a street and flatland contest in Tapolca which is not too far from the famous lake Balaton. There will be a master and pro class contest. Two weeks later on July 14 it's time for the VI. Holiday Bmx Flatland Contest - JK! Edition in Kecskemét (one hour south of the capital Budapest). The organizers dropped us some more information:
"This year, Kecskemét Flatland Crew is preparing a huge surprise for the national flatland community. The well-established and highly anticipated Holiday Cup is under transformation. Our goal is not a secret - to make Flatland BMX even more popular. We want more people to get to know the sport and therefore encouraging young people to try and start this amazing exercise. The court of the Kertészeti College was a perfect setting for conducting flatland competitions, but fell outside of the periphery of the public. This year, we have re-imagined the event; working together with Kecskemét Jóképű Club we are organizing the competition within the frameworks of a magnificent sports day.The location is going to be the popular Domb Beach." - the schedule and more details are available here.
Michele is one of the few Italian riders out there and is showing his latest progress here. He is obviously focussion on rolling tricks and is getting seriously good at all kinds of whiplash and nose manual variations. We are impressed, keep progressing Michele!
Quentin is an awesome guy and an awesome rider! You have to watch his new video, full of hard switches and as the titles says without any steamrollers ;-) Quentin is riding for brakeless.ch and we found his comment on their blog:
“Steam Roller is one of the first tricks beginners learn in BMX Flatland. This trick can be linked with almost any other, it became an easy to handle trick in the middle of a combo. By removing this trick from my combos, I was obligated to discover new tricks to build my combos. Ever since my combos have become smoother and more dynamic. Sometimes, thanks to a limitation, you get over your own limits.”
Benoit Freulon shared 60 cool photos of the Sosh Freestyle Cup with us. We love the one of Waldemar above with the crowd and hills in the background. Check the gallery for more, we added them to the photos that we posted earlier on the weekend: Sosh Freestyle Cup Gallery
